What is a Simple Church? What is your reaction to this definition?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? It’s biblical.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? What is a church?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion... (Philippians 2:1 NIV ) a church is a community of people who are being saved...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. (Philippians 2:2 NIV) ...who with a single purpose...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, (Philippians 2:3 NIV) ...a selfless pursuit...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. (Philippians 2:4 NIV) ...a small group perspective...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:5-8 NIV) ...and a servant posture...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. (Philippians 2:12-13 NIV) ...are together pursuing steady progress...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. (Philippians 2:14-16 NIV) ...until they become a shining proclamation of christ wherever they are.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? "A church is a community of people who are being saved, who with a single purpose, a selfless pursuit, a small group perspective and a servant posture are together pursuing steady progress until they become a shining proclamation of Christ wherever they are."

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? “COMMUNITYSHIP”

Why a Simple Church? It’s better.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? It’s easier to start. It’s easier to maintain. It’s easier to grow. It’s easier to multiply. It never ends.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Why a Simple Church? How do you compare the biblical definition of church with common understandings about the church? Based on the biblical definition of church, why is it better to pursue a simple church model than a traditional model?

PowerPoint Presentation:

How do we transition to Simple Churches? Those who want to start simple churches, please register your team immediately. Once you’ve registered, start immediately. No need to wait for further training. Teams that have started can join with other teams to form an IMPACT based on similarities or common concerns. We only want two levels/groups in RLCC: Simple Churches and IMPACT. (IMPACT will meet only as needed.)

PowerPoint Presentation:

How do we transition to Simple Churches? Simple Churches must not meet at the Center. Only IMPACTs can meet at the Center. The Center will be a place for special occasions, training, and administration only. Be familiar with our resources, both live and online, so that you can use them to help your members grow in their faith. Remember, our goal is empowerment, not dependence or control.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How do we transition to Simple Churches? We will have our Ekklesia twice a year (first Sunday of January and July). All Simple Churches and IMPACT must attend. The leadership team (2-3 people) of each Simple Church will be the Overseers of that church. So each Simple Church will be team-led. The IMPACT will not oversee the Simple Churches. Each leadership team must commit/submit to the New Vision Frame of RLCC.

PowerPoint Presentation:

THE NEW VISION FRAME OF RLCC Mission: Make real life possible for real people through simple churches. Method: Proclaim the Gospel; Lead seekers to Christ; Assimilate them into Simple Churches; Nurture their faith, hope and love; Train workers who will repeat the process.
